These numbers do not include today's game.

After two and a half weeks where nothing could go right for the Dodgers, everything clicked at the same time. The Dodgers managed to go on this win streak with a balanced attack: no player contributed over 2.5 runs above average this week, while every regular except Julio Lugo was above average. No real room for analysis here: when the Dodgers lineup is able to consistently put people on base, the lack of power really isn't an issue.
